Automated coverage closure
Nusym tool does automated coverage closure. It automatically directs the random constraints so as to target coverage points.It automates the process of going between coverage goals and determining what constraints to modify, then modifying the constraint to achive the coverage goal. When we hit bug in random scenario we generally re-play the sequence to fix the bug , but with Nusym's verification tool the same bug is reproduced just at the point of bug , the long sequence of random transaction need not be reproduced to hit the bug. The tool supports both VERA and Systemverilog languages for automatic coverage closure.
